Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Extra-Gentle Cleansing Wipes
Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Extra-Gentle Cleansing Wipes
Offered by Bellaella-co-uk
Price: £5.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine... but £6 is pricey for 'fine', 2 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
According to my mum, who I got these for... these babies are "fine" but not obviously much better than what she'd typically pay £4 for. Took her eye make up off no problem, but then so do the cheaper ones. Skin didn't feel appreciably softer. That's mum's verdict. Take it or leave it.


Go Stationery Woodland Kraft Hare Exercise Book
Go Stationery Woodland Kraft Hare Exercise Book
Price: £4.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Nicer-than-average exercise book, 2 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Nicer-than-average 'soft-back' type exercise book... quality paper stock and a lovely Woodland Trust hare design on the front. Each page inside is plain lined (the only design is on the front). Makes for a really nice 'jotter' to keep about the place for making notes. Other reviewers don't like the price... I suppose £4 is steep for what it is, but if you're going to have pad lying around the place it may as well look nice and this is classier than the average Paperchase number.


Go Stationery Woodland Kraft Hare To Do List
Go Stationery Woodland Kraft Hare To Do List
Price: £5.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Nicer-than-average pad for the kitchen, 2 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Nicer-than-average 'To-Do List'-type pad for keeping in the kitchen... quality paper stock and a lovely Woodland Trust hare design on the front. Super-strong magnet on the back for keeping it on the fridge etc. Each page is lined, with tick-boxes for ticking off completed tasks should you wish (I personally don't, just use it for memos, shopping lists etc.). The pages are perforated to tear out neatly.


Freedom to Fail: Heidegger's Anarchy
Freedom to Fail: Heidegger's Anarchy
by Peter Trawny
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful insights on the Schwarze Hefte, 27 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The publication of Heidegger's private notebooks — the so-called Schwarze Hefte, or black notebooks — has ensured that the seminal German thinker continues to scandalise 40 years after his death... the black notebooks provide a window onto Heidegger’s most private philosophical thoughts, and in so doing offer evidence of his anti-Semitism and commitment to certain strands of Nazi ideology. Heidegger must surely have known that these notebooks were littered with dubious remarks... so why did he opt to include them in his collected works?! It's a question at the heart of this, German philosopher Peter Trawny's short little book, a useful extended essay from someone who, as the editor of the black notebooks, knows their contents probably better than anybody else. Highly insightful.


LeapFrog Number Loving Oven
LeapFrog Number Loving Oven
Price: £13.33

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretend cooking + 'educational' signalong... uncomfortable bedfellows, 27 Dec. 2015
This review is from: LeapFrog Number Loving Oven (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
No problems at all with the build quality or anything like that, but for our 2 year old daughter, this toy sort of fell between two posts and hasn't been a hit really. She is now of an age where she loves imaginative pretend play i.e. in this case “cooking” but has outgrown all the songs and light displays typical of LeapFrog toys... they would have appealed to her a year ago, but at that point she wasn't ready for the pretend cooking. She is now much better off with a regular (wooden) pretend kitchen set, where her imagination can go into overdrive unfettered. An entirely personal observation but in our case, that's the way it is.


Burt's Bees Naturally Nourished Collection, 3-Piece Gift Set
Burt's Bees Naturally Nourished Collection, 3-Piece Gift Set
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent-quality, economical gift box packaging together hand cream and x2 lip balms, 27 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is pretty good value for a tenner given that the hand cream alone retails for £9... so you're basically getting x2 lip balms for the remaining quid (whereas they'd each set you back £2-3 individually). The packaging itself is actually fairly decent quality compared to some of the flimsy cosmetics 'gift boxes' out there, making it a rather nice little present for the significant dry-skinned other in one's life. Also Burt's Bees stuff is decent quality and tends to fall into that category of products which is considered a bit of a 'treat' by most, rather than an everyday essential, so these products lend themselves nicely to a gift box.


Nivea Skin Smoothness 5-Piece Gift Set
Nivea Skin Smoothness 5-Piece Gift Set
Price: £14.00

3.0 out of 5 stars x5 everyday Nivea skin care products boxed together for a tenner, 27 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
What you’re buying here is a fairly flimsy cardboard box containing x5 individual Nivea products which, to buy individually from Boots would cost £12.90 at the time of writing:

1) Nivea Daily Essentials Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes 20s (Stand-alone price=£3.15)
2) Nivea Daily Essentials Rich Moisturising Day Cream (Stand-alone price=£3.99)
3) Nivea Irresistibly Smooth Body Lotion 250 ml (Stand-alone price=£1.87)
4) Nivea Smooth Nourishing Hand Cream (Stand-alone price=£1.74)
5) Nivea Pearly Shine Lip Care (Stand-alone price=£2.15)

In terms of the packaging, it's not exactly high-end looking... like a box of Milk Tray. But the products themselves aren't exactly high-end and the price reflects that. Personally, for a gift, which is what this is being marketed as, I'd sooner spend a tenner on one really nice thing as a 'treat' than five perfectly nice but basically 'everyday' things boxed together, but hey, that's a personal preference. I suppose it's a reasonably economical way of getting all these products under one roof if you know that the recipient is a Nivea fan. The individual products are all great, probably more like 4* in their own right (I personally really rate the hand cream, which is maybe the best I've used in terms of non-greasyness and quick absorption), but I'm judging it overall as a 'gift set', which is what it's being pushed as, hence 3*'s.


Aquadoodle Colour Travel Bag
Aquadoodle Colour Travel Bag
Offered by Head Of The Rugged River
Price: £15.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Portable Aquadoodling... but restrictive, and overpriced for what it is (there are better options), 27 Dec. 2015
This review is from: Aquadoodle Colour Travel Bag (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A small little padded carry-bag that folds out to reveal x2 Aquadoodle drawing areas, with a a smaller-than-regular Aquadoodle pen clipped inside. The USP of this versus a regular Aquadoodle is its portability, making it *theoretically* ideal for trips out (in the car, at a restaurant whatever). But that is also its curse because the drawing areas are small and quickly saturated; you've then got to wait a while for them to dry out ready for re-use. They also get grubby. Personally, I'd say that for out-and-about doodling you're better off with a Megasketcher, or Tomy Playtime Mini Mats (a third the price)... or just some colouring pencils and mummy's shopping list.


TOMY Bath Foam Cone Factory
TOMY Bath Foam Cone Factory
Offered by Stortford Toys Limited
Price: £24.98

5.0 out of 5 stars The toy that saved bathtime for my 2 y.o. bath-phobic daughter!, 27 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm indebted to this toy – my 2 year old daughter absolutely hated having a bath, to the extent that you would think she was almost phobic... but now we can’t keep her out of the thing, thanks to this toy. She loves sitting there, making Mr Whippy-style ‘ice creams’ with bubble bath, adding 'sprinkles' and offering them around. Simply but highly effective. The toy has a nice retro look to it and is decent build quality; the suckers haven’t shifted since Day 1. A huge hit. Easily the best bath toy going.


PRO PLAN Cat ADULT 7+ with LONGEVIS Rich in Chicken, 3 kg
PRO PLAN Cat ADULT 7+ with LONGEVIS Rich in Chicken, 3 kg
Price: £18.49

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent dry food for older felines... but huge packaging is a mixed blessing, 25 Sept. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Difficult to generalise when reviewing cat food because each cat has their own preferences but for context mine is fairly fussy, only normally picks at dry food (we normally give her half dry/ half wet) and tends to do best with Purina One and Iams. I'd say she likes this one just as much, if not more than those two- a few times she's eaten the entire portion, which for her is rare, and given that it's optimised for cats her age, I'll possibly switch to Pro Plan long term. That said, I wasn't wholly impressed with the packaging: it's a *really* big bag, but that's a mixed blessing. Good from a value point-of-view i.e. 3kg for South of £20, but I'd far sooner have multiple smaller bags (something Amazon does offer on subscribe-and-save) so that I can mix it up a bit... my cat gets bored when given the same flavour each day, but with a bag this big taking up cupboard space – if you’ve got a 'bijou' kitchen, maybe an issue – you've little other choice, else it'll go stale ... speaking of which, I managed to tear it wide open at first asking, ruining the seal, which was annoying, meaning that I'm having to 'seal' it with pegs, so it'll not stay fresh as long as you'd ideally like. This may be a reflection on my own ineptness of course, but I can’t be the only ham-fisted cat owner, so worth putting on record.
